This New Chart Visualizes the World's 100 Most-spoken Languages #infographic

Were you aware that there are more than 7,000 different languages around the world? All this massive amount of languages can be traced back to only 11 ancient languages. One of these is Indo-European, which split over time into various languages such as Germanic, Hellenic, and Balto-Slavic. Throughout history, these sub-languages have continued to branch off, and gradually became what we now know as German, Hindi and Russian.

Even English, which is at present the most commonly spoken language in the world, has been found to have origins in what was once Germanic. Many widely spoken Germanic-born languages include Dutch, Afrikaans, Swedish, and Bavarian. As mentioned earlier, English has been listed as the world's most-spoken language with more than 1.13 billion English speakers, 379 million of whom are native speakers. Take a journey through the history of language with this infographic, which ranks the world's 100 most spoken languages, and trace your own language's lineage back to its roots.
